I have many questions and I have also been getting questions lately related to communication between men and women. Just when I thought I knew the answer for sure, I was thrown for a loop again!
In some cases it does actually seem that men and women may be speaking two totally different languages. I mean we are using the same words and phrases, but the interpretations seem to come across completely differently based on whether one is speaking to a male or a female.
I am wondering what accounts for these differences or break downs in communications between the sexes? This is a critical subject because I see this occurring on a daily basis in my own life and I the lives of others around me.
Are one or both parties not actually expressing what they really mean/feel?
In the case of females it is obvious that most of the time we come across as emotional and dramatic ..which seems to be largely how we communicate. As a female I can say for my own perspective that this stems from a simple need or desire to be heard, understood and appreciated and to be made to feel “safe or protected” by my man.
In the case of males it seems that the same words said may have a completely different meaning than what is actually being said. Could it be that males are conditioned to “protect” support etc..and that someone in there the need for communication or comment isnt the same as it is for a woman..or are we missing something here guys?
Where is the balance between the two?
Insights from both sides are welcomed and appreciated. 🙂
